Carlos Elles
District-wide Hispanic Liaison

Dr. Marci Larsen with Carlos Elles

Carlos Elles is the Monroe School Districts largest gem.  He knows the backgrounds of so many of our families.  You can simply say the word "Carlos" and families instantly know he is a safe place and a trusted person.  He is kind, patient, non-judgmental and will offer a lot of gratitude towards his co-workers.  Carlos is also a natural coach for other staff in guiding them to working with families in our district.  He believes in parents and guardians being able to be empowered and advocate for themselves and their students.  One of his most genuine characteristics is his inclusive outlook.

She embraces the different needs of all students and views them as strengths so no one feels left out while in her classroom. We are so happy she has joined the Maltby family!


Tanya Brinck
Assistant Principal at Park Place Middle School

Tanya Brinck & Dr. Marci Larsen

Tanya brings so much experience from her past roles to our school and district. We are excited to be a part of the Equity Team she is leading at Park Place that has both parents and staff collaboration. Her strengths are talking with middle schoolers with honesty that also provides them feedback on how they can approach situations in a more responsible way and her sweet disposition helps families feel at ease, and that they are being listened to regarding their concerns. Tanya will have an impact on each student's long-term success being a part of her school.
